A delicious selection for all internet-compatible humans: EFF: On 6/5, 65 Things We Know About NSA Surveillance That We Didn’t Know a Year Ago Konstantinos “Gnome” Dimopoulos is doing one of those Patreon thingies. He’s been quietly, humbly writing about indie games for nearly a decade, getting the word out about hundreds of interesting games […]
I saw this the other day, and figured it was probably more important than identity politics.
Hey, it’s four in the morning and I can’t sleep, so here are some links! I’m currently reading “Debt: The First 5000 Years” by David Graeber, and it’s gone from highly interesting to immensely frustrating. This review over at The Charnel-House is the best I’ve found so far, though I could probably add a lot […]
Games, cats and communism. What else could you expect from this blog? Ossuary is a new commercial game by Gregory Avery-Weir, creator of Looming and indie classic The Majesty of Colors. I wonder, do game critics nowadays even remember how big games like The Majesty of Colors were? Do they remember how for a while, […]
Hi. I haven’t been updating much lately, mainly due to a) working really hard b) the continuing saga of Health Problems. I have some, Verena has some, and the cat has some too. It’s the kitty that’s really worrying us at the moment, since it’s barely been a month since her surgery and she has […]

Time for more links. Oneiropolis Compendium: The Moddhey Dhoo. I’m kind of sad the Compendium can’t get more attention; I think it’s some of the best writing I’ve ever done. I don’t think there’s a lot like it on the internet. Anyway, here’s a new entry. Scientists As Heroes: Greg Egan’s Teranesia. We’ve been a […]
So, my dental surgery didn’t go so well. I have a giant gaping wound in my mouth, a tooth with a hole in it that should have been fixed, no way of eating, trouble closing my mouth properly, and a surplus of anger, disappointment and despair. But what about you? Seriously, what about you? I […]
Today is Verena’s birthday, so I won’t be online much. Instead we will have some nice food and go to the zoo (even though it’s raining) and then to the cinema. It will be a wonderful day, rain or no rain. Yes. We will make it so, as Jean-Luc might say. You know what would […]
